Art about Race and Culture - My White Friends

Often times in our society art can address and voice concerns about our culture and society in a thoughtful and powerful way.  Oftentimes with the subtle power of an image can speak volumes. Myra Green's work, "My White Friends" exemplifies this power of art to me. It explores race and culture through the natural relationships that form over ones lifetime, it shows real connection and often can amplify stereotypes.

German art publisher KEHRER VERLAG is interested in publishing the portfolio of images as a  book, and now with kickstarter, patrons can donate to the progress and receive rewards. Sometimes i just love the way that technology has given us the ability to not just read about, but participate in projects like this.

All donations welcome - help this artistic vision come to life!
